Well, you have lots of different things to try, but depending upon your mums enjoyment level, you can try the following crowd favorites:
 
-Mario Kart Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Zack & Wiki: Barbaros' Treasure, Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Super Paper Mario
 
Then you might look at some other different titles like Boom Blox, Endless Ocean, My Sims, Geometry Wars: Galaxies, or Tiger Woods
 
If you got the Wii Motion Plus accessory, then Wii Sports Resort or the latest Tiger Woods might fit in with her interest level.
 
Adding in Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, and 3 from the Virtual Console can't hurt either. Play some 2-player and see if she likes Mario or Luigi better ;P

Yeah, Oldschool's already mentioned the titles that you should try out. Not much more to add.

For your mother, you could get Endless Ocean: Blue World and Animal Crossing.
 
What types of games does she like?

This is how I would Fix that sentence.
 

"Yeah, I knew that, it is Namco Bandai.  It has been fixed bitch.  Suck it down."


 
That is what I would have said at least.

Yes, but unlike you, I am a nice, gentle and considerate  person, who never say such rude things as I am always temperate with my choice of word  :/

@oldschool:
Ah, you never cease to make me laugh, almost choked on air there. 
 
Might want to get more controllers, and some of the games mentioned are way better with a classic/gamecube controller. 
 
Oh, and add Darkside Chronicles and Red Steel 2 to that list. 
 
And don't play Muramasa on an empty stomach, that game makes me hungry for jap food, specifically, udon, sushi, sashimi.

@oldschool:  I still think you do not have enough Gameboy advances.  In all honesty, you should donate that money to the poor via the Godwind Charitable Trust Fund.  I will make good use of it.

Not enough GBAs?  6 wasn't enough?  Plus 4 DS that also play GBA and don't forget the GBA Player for the Gamecube.  I will never run out of ways to play my GBA games  :/
